Just as I finished saying New York was coming back hard after that Joe Budden Remember the Titans joint, I get some new Ron Browz in my email. But all jokes aside, before I went to Jump Out the Window, I decided to give it a chance, and I am quite glad that I did. Browz, with the help of NY vet Jadakiss, has dropped a new single, 86 (off his unscheduled new album New Rules), that’s arguably his best song to date. Although it may not be a smash like Pop Champagne, I can definitely picture it on the radio. Some of the pros include Browz solid production work, which will fit the club and your trunk just fine. And while the sirens may remind you of some Chicken Noodle Soup ridiculousness, the beat still bounces pretty nice. While not a lot of folks want to hear Ron’s rapping, he’s both not horrible, nor is he in anyone’s Top 10 either. Overall, I think the record is pretty solid, especially with Jada’s guest verse, but what do you think? Hey, it’s Auto-Tune-free!
